Super Easy Vegan Banana Orange Muffins

So, I've created a muffin monster.

My almost three year old is obsessed at the moment.  She wakes up and demands muffins! So, its Friday and this is the third time I've made muffins this week!  Ugh, the demands of a toddler...of course they are semi healthy. Some more that others. I've made carrot cake muffins, (healthier than they sound) Pineapple Sunrise muffins, and today the Banana Orange Muffins.  All were vegan, and these ones have more sugar that I would like, but oh well.  Its Friday, right?  I picked this recipe because it was super fast to throw together even with the customizing.

So, I knew these would be tasty once I tested the batter. Which you can totally do without worry because there are no eggs!

They turned out perfect! The recipe I followed said to bake for 25 minutes, but mine were just right at 16 minutes.  I despise over cooked baked goods, so mine are usually just a bit shy of being under cooked.  Which is not scary cause its usually vegan, although they might look very pretty.  But, they taste awesome! 

It's kind of a joke in our house about how much I bake.  And my husband thinks I'm trying to make him fat, but I'm like, "Just cause it's in muffin form doesn't mean its the devil filled with sugar!" Which we decided sounded tasty!

Also, these called for walnuts which I would have added but the baby was crying and I forgot, and I don't think the other child could have waited any longer for breakfast.  We were already up for a few hours before I got around to making her anything.

I think these yummies made it all better. She said they were "So alicious" her term for delicious.

                                                           Happy after breakfast with baby sister

This is where the recipe came from.  Like I said I left out walnuts, and changed the baking time to 16 minutes.  And I added a few things...Here is how I made them

Bake 360
15-20 minutes in lined muffin tin until toothpick comes out clean
Makes 12 muffins (or 15 if you don't over fill like I do)

3 ripe bananas
2 halo oranges
zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons of vanilla
1/4 cup of vegan butter softened (almost melted)

2 cups white whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

Mash bananas, squeeze in peeled halos or whatever oranges u have.  Add zest, lemon, vanilla, butter, and sugar and stir until blended.

In another bowl add the rest of the ingredients.  Pour together and stir until just blended.  Use a ice cream scoop to fill lined muffin tin.  Or a spoon if you don't have one.

Bake, Eat
